Centreville Moose Donates Tommy Moose to Oakton Fire DepartmentFairfax City, On September 24, 2016, the Centreville Moose Lodge, donated another batch of Tommy Moose to the Fairfax County Oakton Fire Department 434. Tommy Moose® is a friendly, playful, cuddly moose doll whose sole purpose is to bring comfort to children in times of stress, uncertainty, or anxiety. He personifies one of the cornerstone tenants of the Loyal Order of Moose: caring for children.

Tommy originated as a Moose community service project in Connecticut and soon spread throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Since 2002, more than 100,000 Tommy Moose plush dolls have been donated to shelters, hospitals, and emergency workers, who in turn deliver them to children in need of some comfort when facing some of life’s biggest challenges.

So, it is with pride that our Governor Mike McKenna and Senior Regent Nancy Petty of the Centreville Moose in cooperation with all its members, donated two dozen Tommy Moose plush dolls to the Oakton 434 Fire Department. It feels good to donate these Tommy Moose’s for such a good cause.
